SAY NO!

SAY NO

Music/German Lyrics: Konstantin Wecker (1993)
English Lyrics: Christin Gaebel, Dan Riley (2019)

If they're yelling blatant Nazi songs,
jokes about Jews and laughing about human rights,
indulging their own stupidity,
loud and drinking, gesting towards the barkeeper
who is to listen and to offer resolve,
then get up, get involved and say NO!

When some Know It All holocaust denier
sets the story straight' and starts drivelling on
about the all too familiar Auschwitz lie,
stand strong and stand up
and tell the lousy halfwit NO! 

Whether you are homeless, or a singer,
a banker or a loafer,
whether a priest or a teacher,
a housewife or street sweeper,
if you are six or one hundred,
don't be frightened or bewildered,
rage from within and just say NO!

And when egotistic men of honour
nobly block your way
with their mumbles and their glances
barely rising shoulder high
as they boast of their old ladies
who are kept with ball and chain
in the confines of a womans worth,
safe within the home and hearth,
then do not enter such a club
say it loud and just say NO! 

And when teachers once again resort
to spreading hate at schools whereby a
race or sex or gender has to suffer for its colour,
making Germany brown again
instead of starting from a fresh new end,
then don't be scared to stand and shout,
say NO!

Whether you are homeless, or a singer,
a banker or a loafer,
whether a priest or a teacher,
a housewife or street sweeper,
if you are six or one hundred,
don't be frightened or bewildered,
rage from within and just say NO!
